We are delighted to have recorded the best year in our 65-year history, with sales revenues and profits at an all-time high.
In the period to 31 December 2015, the company generated revenues of £13.186m, an increase of 22% on the previous year. Profit before tax also increased by a massive 58%.
We have exciting plans for the future and have set ourselves the ambitious target of achieving sales in excess of £20 million by 2018. More job opportunities are set to be created for local people as we gear up for the next stage of growth.
Over the past 12 months, 20 new members of staff have been appointed across all levels of the business, along with eight apprentices. 20 new jobs are set to be created over the coming months, which will enable us to cope with the increased demand from our broad client base.
Much of our current success can be attributed to the introduction of an innovative new business strategy, designed to drive growth over a five-year period.
Major developments have included a rebrand and name change for the business, a company restructure to match business needs to output, a change in culture and a new ethos of continuous improvement, along with continued investment in the business to generate profit.
Commenting on the company’s continued growth, joint managing director James Twigg, said:
– Our results over the past 12 months are absolutely tremendous and are testament to the work that has been put in by the whole team for a number of years now.
– Our core philosophy is one of continuous innovation and improvement and we continue to push the boundaries in order to achieve our objectives and remain ahead of the competition.
– We intend to exploit the competitive advantage that our unique position in the market gives us, with the ultimate aim of being the number one in what we do – provide integrated security and communications solutions.â€
